Joe Paterno's Salary?

Paterno's salary was one of the best-kept secrets in Pennsylvania, a state where keeping the public in the dark is one of the primary missions of government.

Penn State football coach Joe Paterno's salary is about a half-million dollars a year.

Paterno, 80, was paid $427,220 in the first 10 months of 2007_ putting his year-end salary on track to exceed $500,000. He was paid $490,638 last year, according to the retirement system.

But it's not even close to what some other big-name coaches are making. Alabama's Nick Saban is the highest paid coach at $4 million per year, while Oklahoma's Bob Stoops makes over $3 million. Ohio State's Jim Tressel, Florida's Urban Meyer and South Carolina's Steve Spurrier make upward of $2 million annually.

Many coaches receive substantial bonuses or outside income, but the retirement system data did not show other forms of compensation.
